The pressure is only part of equation. Most of us want a good shower with less water. That's where Oxgenics shower heads come in.

Is it worth using the Oxygenics if you're not boondocking (therefore don't care about your grey tank)? Does the Oxygenics restrict the water flow more than the Jayco supplied showerhead?

DW is REALLY looking forward to unlimited hot water; I don't need my tankless going wonky b/c my showerhead is the culprit. Even after having spent the $100 on the high end water pressure regulator mentioned a couple pages back.

We get a much better shower with our Oxygenics then we ever did with the stock head...plus, we use the shut off on the Oxygenics which the stock head did not have.

Shutoff isn't ideal w/ the tankless water heater (from what I've read). But Ok, I'll have to remember to pull the Oxygenics head out of the unit I'm trading in.

I'm liking the smart pause idea of the shower head

I have a Watts adjustable similar to what has been listed here. I never use it. As "free-flow" as the Watts devices are, they still restrict the flow a bit. And when I'm only seeing about 0.8 gpm at my showerhead, I don't want to restrict it anymore. I have a pressure gauge that I use to check the water connection at the campsite with when we arrive. I have never found a site where the pressure exceeded 50psi. When I was first battling with my water heater, Jayco told me to stop using the regulator. They said as long as the pressure doesn't exceed 100psi, their plumbing is fine.

Water Pressure

Better get that in writing. I have been in CGs with 90 to 100 psi and it does damage.

100psi is high even for residential stick-house plumbing. Just my 2 cents.

When setting up this Watts regulator, can I set it up at home w/ a regular hose with pistol grip on the end? If I'm looking to regulate to 50psi, once I have it set it shouldn't matter where I plug it in right?

Looking to avoid futzing w/ it at the campground.

I sure did. I've never seen anything close to 90psi at a campsite. Heck, my house only has 70psi to it. But, that's why I check the pressure first. If I ever saw something extreme, I'd use the regulator.
